Not speaking on behalf of the inquirer here, but I have various wikis on my
own machine which still run 1.8. Since they aren't meant to be exposed to the
Internet, I'm not going to upgrade them because it would be a distraction, and
upgrading my OS distribution (and discovering the incompatibility mentioned
earlier) was already enough of a distraction. I suppose that performing a Moin
upgrade would have been only a bit more work, but you never really know.
I agree that people should be moving to 1.9, especially after the hardening it
has received in recent months.
P.S. Now that I've upgraded my distro, I might conceivably get to spend a bit
more time on Moin 2, especially since it provides Python 2.7 as the default
and this appears to be what Moin 2 prefers.
